May 28, 2013
OLYMPIA—Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson today announced the state filed a Notice of Appeal in the case of US v Washington— the “culverts” case.
“The state remains committed to addressing fish passage barriers and will continue to do so as resources permit. The implications of the case, however, stretch beyond culverts. Issues of this magnitude deserve full and thoughtful appellate review.”
The case is being appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which will soon establish a schedule for the briefing and argument of the case.
